Manchester United are eyeing a return to winning ways at struggling Everton in the Premier League this weekend to boost their quest for a top-four finish. The Red Devils are one of the teams vying for a place in the top four and they received1a major setback in their quest to meet the target following the 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend. To this effect, they would be hoping to bounce back with a win against hosts Everton this weekend.
Ex-Arsenal and Aston Villa midfielder Paul Merson has predicted draws for the Liverpool, Manchester United games this weekend. He talked about the outcome of the games involving the two traditional English teams in his column for Sportskeeda.
Former England manager Sam Allardyce has been critical of midfielder Paul Pogba after he failed to show up during Manchester United’s shock 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. The France international started the campaign with a man of the match showing versus Leicester City but he has since looked off-peak with his performance.
Speaking on TalkSPORT, Allardyce was defensive of under-fire manager Jose Mourinho and suggested that United were the dominant side despite the result. However, he did not have any sympathy for Pogba, who struggled to gain control over the likes of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier in the centre of the park.
